Virgin Limited Edition has brought forward the introduction of the new Son Bunyola Hotel by two months. The hotel, an addition to the long-standing Son Bunyola villas, was revealed last May and was expected to debut in August 2023. Bookings have now opened for the 26-bedroom property for guests arriving 16 June.
Set in the prestigious Tramuntana region of Mallorca, the expansion includes the restoration of a historic Finca building dating back to the 1500s. For future guests looking for a sneak peak of the luxury hotel, a brand-new rendering of the courtyard (above) is now available ahead of its imminent opening.

The Son Bunyola Hotel joins three stand-alone luxury villas on the 1,000-acre Son Bunyola estate – part of the Virgin Limited Edition portfolio. The estate is positioned on a UNESCO World Heritage site, where the new hotel forms an integral part of the estate, surrounded by almond and olive trees, vines and citrus fruit trees.
The 16th century Finca has been meticulously restored during the development, retaining all original features to seamlessly blend new design with historical elements to celebrate and showcase the rich history of the building.
The hotel will encompass the main Finca and the Tafona, along with several annexe buildings, to house 26 luxury rooms and suites in total. The Tafona – where the historic olive press was previously located – is home to two stunning showcase suites with terraces.
The hotel also boasts two unique Tower Suites with panoramic mountain and sea views – one of which was once a Medieval defence tower dating back to the 13th century. There will be two restaurants at the hotel – a Mediterranean restaurant and a tapas restaurant, several outdoor dining terraces, a luxury spa, and a swimming pool with sweeping views across the famous Foradada and surrounding countryside.
Rates start from €600 per room per night (bed and breakfast basis).
Last month, Virgin Group revealed that Virgin Limited Edition and Virgin Hotels would be united under one parent brand, Virgin Hotels Collection, effective 1 April 2023. Virgin Hotel Collection will be headed by Virgin Hotels’ CEO James Bermingham.
